Lou Reed's custom electric bass guitar made by Roger Sadowsky of New York. Reed is known to have played this bass on stage for the song ""Guilty"" in early 2006, as attested to by Reed's longtime guitar tech, Stewart Hurwood.

The bass features an offset-waist body shape, two Jazz Bass-style pickups, unbound rosewood fingerboard, and a blue-grey metallic finish. The bass measures approximately 46"" long and is in very good performance-used condition.

There is minor surface wear throughout from use, including scuffs, scratches, some tarnishing to the metal tuners, and general handling wear. Small strips of colored tape were applied near the control knobs and on the neck to aid Reed in his performances. There are small felt pen marks at the base of one control knob.

It comes in a hard shell case that has moderate surface wear throughout from use, and is coded ""19.""
